In this work, a modern design head follows a clunky mechanical body, forming a choreography of stupidity. The shadow cast by each arm triggers the mechanism to open, over and over again, thus creating an infinite loop. This work references the larger structures of order and compliance that we follow on a daily basis, with the intelligent piece of technology telling the obsolete technology what to do. In his work, Nikki aims to sculpt the spaces and environments around us to create experiential landscapes.
